What's more, the marketing photo only shows a snippet of the pool, hiding the fact that the pool is more of a large bathtub than a spot where you can have a nice swim. Not to mention it's on a small cement rooftop, with just a few lounge chairs. Not exactly what we imagined when we left home for our Mexican beach vacation!
